In Massachusetts you need to have over $2000 in medical expenses or a broken bone in order to sue the responsible party for an automobile accident for pain and suffering. Nevertheless, you can still collect from his insurance company for payment of medical bills.

If your injury arises to a serious impairment of a bodily function and the driver was negligent and the negligence caused your injury you would have a claim against the driver. You would be well advised to have the claim evaluated by an attorney specializing in personal injury matters. Most attorneys working in this area of the law work on a contingent fee basis. That means there is no attorney fee unless there is a recovery.
